CASA (TBE's Community of Adult Social Action) was created for TBE members to make connections and build community while doing good works together. We invite adult TBE members looking to get more involved or who would like to connect with other TBE members to join our small-group social justice activities. CASA events take place for a few hours on a Saturday or Sunday and there is no commitment to participate in all events. Come when you can! Working together is a great way to get to know people and make meaningful connections—even more so as we do projects that express our Jewish values and truly make a difference. Come check out CASA!

Quote from a CASA Participant:
"The CASA event at Rosie's Place was an amazing experience. As volunteers our TBE community came together with the unified goal of stepping beyond our own busy lives to try to make a difference in the lives of others. We worked hard, but I found the experience to be exceptionally meaningful. We worked well as a team and our efforts were appreciated by Rosie's guests and their dedicated staff. Tikkun olam was the spirit of the day and this particular Shabbat experience will remain with me for a very long time. It was also a wonderful opportunity to meet and connect with some other TBE members that I had not really known before. We shared the day and each others stories. Our CASA program is something you should all experience. If you are anything like me, these experiences will make you feel good about your role and enhance your pride in being part of our TBE family."
